Smart Home with or without Cloud

Security is a top priority at myGEKKO, with or without Internet access

A smart home is tomorrow's home. Efficient, energy-saving and environmentally friendly technologies will soon be found in every building and thus improve our lives. Are these systems and therefore the building also safe? Can they be used without the internet? With myGEKKO the answer is yes!
myGEKKO can look back on 25 years of experience in building automation and has set itself the task of creating a secure smart home - from the inside and the outside. Inside refers to the operating system per se, outside refers to the building itself.

The myGEKKO concept impresses with the possibility that it can be used with or without the Internet. Without the cloud, all functions can be operated and controlled on the display controller SLIDE 2. The user can also block all ports from the outside. However, after approval by the user, external technical support can access this and thus quickly and easily solve potential faults. The updates can also be installed via a USB stick or server without Internet access. myGEKKO enables everyone to have a smart home. Regardless of whether you are critical of the Internet or you do not have a good Internet connection: You
don't have to go without intelligent living.

If you choose myGEKKO with an internet connection, you can be sure that this is also secure. This variant enables you to use the myGEKKO Plus Services. This enables you to access your myGEKKO remotely and to use various services. These include, among other things

  • the notification when the alarm system is triggered
  • the link to services such as Alexa voice control or
  • the retrieval of weather data and forecasts and many more.
All myGEKKO PLUS services are AES encrypted and thus have a high security standard. In addition, the internet-dependent services of myGEKKO are continuously checked, developed and improved. The myGEKKO development team recently carried out a security test (Pentest) in collaboration with cybersecurity expert Nico Werner. myGEKKO OS corresponds to the "state of the art" and is constantly being developed.

At myGEKKO, security is also very important with regard to the building itself. This ranges from access via the alarm system to entire, individually set scenarios. myGEKKO works with renowned manufacturers such as TELENOT. This cooperation enables a quick and easy connection of the devices such as: an alarm system to the building technology. With just one click, scenarios can also be configured with the SLIDE or the app, which take care of all the steps when you leave the house: the shutters are lowered, all lights are switched off and the alarm system is activated. Here you will find an overview of the myGEKKO device interfaces. In the future, myGEKKO will do everything it can to further develop the operating system, including in the area of security. Because one thing is certain at myGEKKO: Security is a top priority, with or without internet access.
